‘It’s built to win WSB’
Ducati have built the V4 R to win World Superbikes and nothing else. Its limit might be on another planet for mere mortals like us, but it’s smooth and easy to ride at a normal pace. It’ll be tractable despite its short-stroke motor and still has service intervals way more generous than any of its rivals. But push on and the V4 R is so brutally powerful, light and unapologetically stiff, you’ll need the strength, stamina and skill of a pro to feel the real benefit of the wings and do justice to the electronics, chassis and engine.
